Fans defend Leeteuk after his physical contact with Irene during 'Lo Siento' performance becomes controversial

Super Junior Leeteuk and Red Velvet Irene's performance stirred up controversy on social media.

At the recent SMTOWN concert in Chile, Irene joined Super Junior for "Lo Siento" stage. Several netizens claimed Leeteuk made Irene uncomfortable by adding unnecessary touches during the dance.

However, fans are defending Leeteuk, stating the original choreograph requires him to put his hands on the partner's waist. 

Many are now demanding an apology for Leeteuk, using the hashtag #ApologizeToLeeteuk.

Leeteuk also seems to be frustrated with the issue as he 'liked' an #ApologizeToLeeteuk post on Instagram.

People are weird, imagine babying your idol to the point that a whole ass almost 30 year old woman can’t be in close proximity with an opposite gender during a performance.

Unbelievable. Not the first time she's performed this exact same choreography to this song (which has included that move since day one). They don't do any of the lifts (that they did with KARD) with her either. Honestly, I hope they replace her when SuJu does this song during SMtown events (that should make the crazies happy). It's a great song and is supposed to be a little sexy and sensual which IMO doesn't match what she does when she performs this song. She's more aloof ice queen which doesn't suit the song.

If ever he wanted some, Irene is old enough to get it. Irene is 27 not 7. And IF EVER this is a ship, Irene is lucky because that Super Junior and variety show money is not drying anytime soon. ;)

But seriously, ELF can debate about Kangin, Sungmin, Shindong, Siwon, etc., but for Leeteuk, ELF will unite and fight.

This is insane. And given his history of depression and his recent social media posts, it’d be best not to push him. I’m sure this kind of thing is not good for his mental health.


It’d probably be best for he and Irene to release a statement to dead the whole controversy.

Irene wanted to do it! they're like family and Irene never talked ill of SJ but yall some haters trying to start fan wars. yall dirty. just like when Red Velvet went to Super TV yall acted like dman childish fools trashing SJ! like bitch wtf! they've known each other for YEARS! closer than any of you guys!

I wish people will stop bullying/harassing people over false accusations. This man has been dealing with a lot, and I suspect he struggles with depression. This is the kind of stuff that makes someone commit suicide. I bet if it was a BTS member or someone from EXO dancing with Irene, these idiots would be fangirling. I feel sorry for the man who Irene eventually dates. Her fans are going to go crazy.

Leeteuk did nothing wrong. he has fans and he was lucky he has defenders. If he was just an unknown idol.. it would have meant the end of his career. People would've spit on an unknown dancer or idol's face.

Leeteuk doesn't deserve this treatment by RV fans, especially as Irene ALWAYS looks uncomfortable no matter what's she's doing. Quite frankly her dancing in the Lo Siento number was lacklustre and as sensual as a piece of wood. And Leeteuk paid an unnecessary price for working with a performer who wasn't professional enough to dance the choreography that was created for the song, (and performed by others without a hitch) simply because Irene's fans lack commonsense and maturity.

irene and leeteuk might know each other more than the fans know them and as far as i have seen sm male and female idols are very friendly towards each other.. its not a big deal to put hands on the waist of a female if she is okay with it..

also irene is in her late 20s and not in her late teens.. she is matured enough to dance with male partners and that much physical contact is not a big deal..

Well people are only hating because it's Leeteuk, these stupid people just wasting their time to think about something like this and hating on him for no reason as usual. Teuk did nothing wrong, he just did the choreo how it should be done and that's it. Teuk is a proffesional, he was giving all his effort for elf even though he was sick but anti-fans just always have to hate him for nothing. But it doesn't matter, elf will fight for Teuk no matter what. You can hate all you want but you can't bring our leader down, we will never let that happen.

Not just in this case but in most cases where there's some misunderstanding. I just can't believe that most of these people are really just that overprotective over Irene. If you don't care to check then just step aside! What's so satisfying in burning a person at the stake just for the heck of it?

I honestly really dislike people who go around making a big deal out of nothing. Leeteuk obviously was just doing the choreography the way that it was supposed to be done. On top of it, Irene looks perfectly comfortable with him. She isn't making a move to get him off of her, isn't making any bothered facial expressions, and she agreed to do the dance in the first place. The choreography is a little more touchy-feely then some of their other song choreographys, and that was obvious with their collab with KARD and in the MV. They're putting words into Irene's mouth, has she ever made mention of it? Has anyone asked her? I bet half of the people who are making a fuss about it are just little kids who are too immature to realize anything. People need to get a life, stop hating on idols to the point of accusing them of "sexual harassment", and check the facts.

We defended on Irene when some uncomfortable things happened to her like her short clothes and SanE incident with her because she really looked annoyed, but this dance with Leeteuk, how can you accuse it as a sexual harassment? it was part of the choreography he barely touched her and he was far from her not like the other girls he danced with, if she wasn't comfortable why did she participate from the first place? and of course they practiced it before the performance day, why is it OK with Jiwoo and Leslie but not Irene?
